Browns QB Watson to face “significant” suspension?

The NFL is reportedly getting closer to handing down a possible punishment to Cleveland Browns quarterback DESHAUN WATSON. The league is expected to argue that Watson deserves a “significant” suspension, perhapsMore up to a full year in length. Watson would likely appeal such a suspension, but the Browns could be headed for the JACOBY BRISSETT era either way. Although Watson isn’t facing any criminal charges, he is facing 24 civil lawsuits ranging from sexual misconduct to sexual assault. As a result, Watson can still be punished by the league for violating the personal conduct policy. Less

Around the NFL: Jacoby Brissett

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Jacoby Brissett is going to start a bunch of games for the Browns this year. All of the bridges between the team and Baker Mayfield have been burned, and Deshaun Watson is facing a lengthy suspension. It will be Brissett under center in a lot of games (gulp).  more »

As Cleveland quarterback DESHAUN WATSON and his legal team await word from the NFL on potential discipline arising from 22 lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct during massage therapy sessions, a new lawsuitMore (#23) has been filed against the Browns signal-caller.

Browns re-sign DE Clowney to one-year deal

The Cleveland Browns and star defensive end JADEVEON CLOWNEY agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $11 million over the weekend. The Browns, led by Clowney and fellowMore defensive star MYLES GARRETT, will once again have one of the most formidable defensive lines in the NFL.

Around the NFL: Deshaun Watson

I see on the schedule that Cleveland is playing at Houston this year. That game did not get selected for national television, but it’s at least late in the year. That gives Deshaun Watson a better chance of being available for his first game against his former team.  more »



Saints expect QB Winston to be ready for season opener

New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen said that veteran quarterback JAMEIS WINSTON is doing well in his rehab from a torn ACL suffered last season. Allen added that it’s “certainlyMore the plan” for Winston to be behind center when the season starts.

New Orleans also bypassed the quarterback position during the draft, meaning Winston is the clear QB1 entering the 2022 season. Less

Darnold remains confident as Panthers explore options

The Carolina Panthers offseason moves suggest they do not view signal-caller SAM DARNOLD as the long-term answer at the quarterback position. Despite the Panthers pursuit of DESHAUN WATSON and various meetingsMore with quarterback prospects in the upcoming NFL draft, Darnold said recently that he knows he is “a good quarterback”. While Darnold’s confidence is admirable, the Panthers and fantasy owners beg to differ. Darnold has proven to be mostly erratic throughout his four-year career after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Less


Fantasy News: QB carousel

It’s been a crazy offseason, particularly at the quarterback position. Russell Wilson and Deshaun Watson are at new addresses, and there are some decent undercard items as well, with Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz in line to start for playoff-caliber teams.   more »



Browns keep QB carousel turning

The big news in Cleveland last week was the addition of QB DESHAUN WATSON, but the Browns were not done making changes to the quarterback room. The Browns proceeded to tradeMore backup quarterback CASE KEENUM to the Buffalo Bills over the weekend, while also agreeing to a one-year deal with 29-year old signal-caller JACOBY BRISSETT. The Brissett signing is noteworthy, considering that Watson could still face a suspension under the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Less

Factoid: Young guns

Quarterback is the key position in the NFL, and in that area, things have skewed towards the AFC side in recent weeks, with Russell Wilson traded out of Seattle and Deshaun Watson staying in conference in his trade. There are fewer quality quarterbacks in the NFC.   more »


Around the NFL: Browns win

Deshaun Watson has made his choice between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints by unexpectedly pivoting to Door No. 3. He's going to Cleveland, and it's almost certainly about the money -- a fully guaranteed $230 million contract. In fantasy terms, it's good for some, not so good for others.   more »

We have some drama in Cleveland, fantasy owners. Browns quarterback BAKER MAYFIELD has requested a trade after the team tried to acquire fellow quarterback DESHAUN WATSON and then proceeded to sayMore that they wanted “an adult” at the quarterback position.

Trubisky in the mix to start for Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed quarterback MITCH TRUBISKY this week to a two-year contract to compete for the starting job following the retirement of longtime quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The New York GiantsMore were reportedly interested in his services, but Trubisky said on Thursday that Pittsburgh was “definitely where I wanted to be”.

Baker Mayfield, by all accounts, is done in Cleveland. He posted what felt like a goodbye on social media last night, with the Browns moving to potentially land Deshaun Watson. Even if those attempts fall short, the team seems like it will be moving onto to a new quarterback.   more »
